How to Save a Life – ASI’s Christine Hutkin Knows How

Filed under: Education, General

Christine HutkinAn ASI employee used her CPR training to help save a life during an otherwise routine client dinner in Dallas. Christine Hutkin (at right), an exhibitor account manager for ASI Show, was leaving an Omni hotel restaurant when she saw a man fall flat on his face.

“Clearly, he’d passed out,” Christine recalled. “Someone said ‘He’s not breathing!'”

Christine, who began working at ASI in August, remembered the Red Cross CPR training she’d gotten while employed at the Bucks County Courier Times, and sprang into action.

“I did what anybody would do,” she said. “I didn’t think about it. I did what I remembered.”

Seconds later, the man sat up and began talking. The EMTs arrived a few minutes later.

Christine said she got certified because, “You never know when you’ll be in that situation.” And as the mother of three young children and a youth group church leader, she wanted to be sure she was ready.

For info on CPR classes, check your local Red Cross office. Certifications are good for two years.
